'Clean' may well have lost its way, but that's down to people misunderstanding what it's all about. Most proponents and followers of clean eating are not saying that scoffing anything else is 'dirty', nor are they seeing clean eating as a medicine that's a cure-all.
As temperatures fall, our winter appetites can easily spin out of control. Studies point out that people do tend to eat more during the winter time, with the average person gaining at least two pounds - and individuals who are already overweight likely to gain a lot more.
Influenced by the Balkan palate, boasting characteristics of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern influences, and reaping quality produce from its rich soil, Macedonian food is bursting with flavour and diversity. Yet with all this, it remains humble and honest.
This combines two of my favourite things, apple crumble and ALL cake! The apple roses are an impressive touch and deceptively simple thing to make.
With its aromatic flavours and rich spices, traditional Thai cuisine is a Londoner's favourite. From the trendy street food of East London to the authentic fine dining restaurants of the West End, South-East Asian aromas permeate the city's streets throughout the week.
Aside from the staples (every Cuban citizen receives a regular supply of rice, sugar, coffee, meat, eggs and bread), food supplies are often limited and can run out without warning. Partly due to this, many meals are based around meat or fish with rice and beans as filler.
"Where there is unity there is always victory," wrote Publilius Syrus around 46BC. So this week when we see that progress in reducing UK household food waste has stalled, it doesn't mean we are losing. It means we need to unite in the fight against food waste.
Upon landing, I was met with acres and acres of sprawling desolate land. It was cragged, fractured - but solid in it's base. It looked to the naked eye like it had won a long, hard fought duel with nature's unpredictability.
If you are doing Dry January or are giving up refined sugar then I applaud you, but please do it for your health, and don't for one minute think you'll be happier if and when you are skinny. It doesn't work like that.
I love leftovers, I really do. Some people don't, which makes me wonder whether they a) eat everything they cook in one sitting, b) have bulging bin bags of food waste or c) simply exercise better portion control than me. Answers on a postcard.
Move(mber) over Stoptober, there's a new gimmicky month in town - all hail the month of Veganuary... yep, that's right, this month is apparently the time to put down the carving knife, kick all thoughts of eggs to kerb, and get down and dirty with some root vegetables.
Respecting your body is an ordeal for most. Like myself there is always a part of my body that I wish could be better or improved. Ultimately we sho...
The overall experience at Urbanspace was really revolutionary for me, and I only touched the surface with three of the twenty vendors they have at Vanderbilt alone. There was a really great atmosphere in the space and all the brands seemed to have a unique offering
It is 2017, a new year and a new you ... or so you have told yourself. The chances are you have already tried and failed at your New Year's resolution by now. Cancel that gym membership, it's just going to waste.
Kids need to know that the closer a product is to nature, the healthier it is for them. Perhaps the industry could come up with a kid-friendly kite mark showing clearly just how near or how far from containing only natural, healthy ingredients the product is.
At least that's what happens in our family. Mum always makes one (complete with teeth-breaking icing which I love - fondant is dirty word in our family), has the odd slice over Christmas and then, come the New Year, she banishes all leftover Christmas cake from the house and foists it onto me
